you'll select a workstation or terminal 
that has just the performance level, 
displayable colors and display size you 
need. 

2D Workstations and Terminals 

The 4320/4220 Family offers a range of 
2D color graphics workstations (4320 
Series) and terminals (4220 Series). 



Whether you select a workstation or ter- 
minal, you'll choose from a variety of 
products to meet your needs. 

Tek Plans for Growth 

The 4330/4230 and 4320/4220 families 
offer easily-installed kits to upgrade your

a 4230 3D terminal, knowing that any 
time you want a 4330 3D workstation 
instead— with 2.5 MIPS additional pro- 
cessing power and full-color graphics 
capabilities— Tek makes it easy to up- 
grade. Or you can begin with a 4220 2D 
terminal and upgrade to a 4320 2D 
workstation. 

Entry-Level Workstations 

The 4310 Series-the 4315, 4316 and 4317 
Graphics Workstations— combine high 
performance with software and program- 
ming support in a low-cost, efficient 
engineering workstation.

The Tektronix 4330 Graphics Worksta- 
tions and 4230 Terminals deliver the 3D 
and 2D graphics features set that Tek 
pioneered in the 4120 Series, now 
enhanced to provide even higher 
performance. 

High-Performance Processing 

The 4330/4230 Family offers excellent 
graphics price/performance. Motorola's 
68020 16.7 MHz processor manages the 
display list, ASCII command processing, 
and input/output. Three microcoded 
engines, including a bit-sliced engine, ac- 
celerate graphics data manipulation. 4M 
bytes of graphics memory (3M bytes 
available to the user as display list 
memory) are standard with an additional 
48M bytes optional. 

The 4330 Series Workstations operate 
with two 68020 processors, working 
together to boost total applications per- 
formance. The applications processor 
operates at 20 MHz and is augmented by 
the 68881 floating point processor— and 
an optional floating point accelerator. 

Tektronix' UTek Operating System is a 
powerful implementation of Berkeley 4.2 
UNIX. With a number of extensions from 
System V, UTek facilitates system ad- 
ministration and maintenance. 

The Right Features for 3D Graphics 
Displayed objects can be shaded via con- 
stant, cosine or Gouraud shading 
methods. Users can select from 16 pre- 
defined translucency patterns and 
specify ambient light intensity and direc- 
tion for up to 16 sources of white light for 
each of 64 possible views. Objects can be 
viewed in parallel or perspective projec- 
tion, sectioned, clipped, rolled and 
rotated. 



Graphics segments and a 32-bit virtual 
graphics coordinate space (24 bits for 3D 
graphics) support true zoom and pan. 
Segment editing and subroutining, and 
the powerful DRAW FACETS command, 
provide high-level programming entities. 
Tek has expanded its patented implemen- 
tation of matching segment classes so 
they can be "picked" for graphics input. 

The 4330/4230 Family offers high- 
performance 2D graphics capability, with 
2D speeds five times faster than available 
in the 4320/4220 Family. 

Easy Handling of Graphics Data 

For entering and manipulating graphics 
data, 4330/4230 systems include a 
VT220-compatible modular keyboard 
with a cursor pad and optional thumb- 
wheels. A mouse is standard with the 
workstations and optional with the ter- 
minals. An optional Valuator Dial Box 
provides 8 fully-programmable graphics 
input controls for the greatest productiv- 
ity in manipulating 3D graphics. 

To support the dense graphics used in 
scientific and engineering applications, all 
systems come with 4M bytes of display 
memory, with 3M bytes available to the 
user. Additional memory is available in 
16M byte increments, with a total of 52M 
bytes (51M bytes available to the user). 

Superior Display Quality 

The 4330/4230 systems offer a choice of 
16 or 19-inch color displays with 
1280x1024 addressable points for an 
exceptionally crisp image. For flicker-free 
viewing, displays operate at 60 Hz, non- 
interlaced. True stereoscopic viewing 
(available as an option) provides alternate 
left-eye, right-eye views at a rate of 115 
Hz. 

Plenty of Mass Storage 
The 4330 Workstations include an 86M 
byte hard disk and a 1.2M byte flexible 
disk for mass storage. Optional additions 
are 156M byte or 234M byte hard disks, 
a 60M byte cartridge tape, and a 360K 
byte flexible disk. For storing even more 
data, the Tektronix 4944 Mass Storage 
Unit supports a variety of streamer tape, 
hard disk and flexible disk options. 

Extensive Compatibility with Software 
Applications 

Compatibility with Tek's 4120 Series and 
new 4320/4220 Family allows hundreds of 
previously-developed applications to run 
with few or no changes, providing the 
flexibility to select the most useful com- 
bination of software and hardware. To 
simplify software porting, the work- 
stations support industry standards like 
UNIX, X Windows, and FORTRAN.

The Tektronix 4320 Series Graphics 
Workstations and 4220 Series Graphics 
Terminals deliver the advanced features 
and high performance needed to manip- 
ulate complex 2D graphics. 

High-Performance Processing 

The 4320/4220 Family offers excellent 
graphics price/performance. Motorola's 
68020 16.0 MHz processor manages the 
display list, ASCII command processing,

System V, UTek facilitates system ad- 
ministration and maintenance. 

Superior Graphics 

The 4320/4220 Workstations and Ter- 
minals share outstanding graphics 
features. Graphics segments, combined 
with 32-bit virtual graphics coordinate 



space, allow full detail zoom and pan. 
Surfaces of one or more bit planes can be 
manipulated as layers, with user control 
over visibility. The scrolling dialog area 
keeps host communications, menus, and 
similar tasks separate from the graphics 
image, and user-definable markers can be 
used to create custom icons.

Tek's 4320/4220 Family is software- 
compatible with Tektronix 4120 Series 
Workstations and the new 4330/4230 
Family of 3D Workstations and Terminals. 
This compatibility provides instant access 
to many software packages for tasks rang- 
ing from presentation graphics and draft- 
ing to cartographic analysis and 
mechanical design. 

An industry-standard implementation of 
C is standard with the 4324 and 4325, and 
FORTRAN 77 and ISO Pascal are optional. 
IBM PC/XT software emulation is stan- 
dard. Tektronix PLOT 10® TekniCAD™ 
and TekniCAP™ have been enhanced for 
the 4324. 

Tektronix and Industry Standards 
In addition to the Tektronix PLOT 10 
graphics standards, 4320 Workstations im- 
plement UTek, Tektronix' powerful UNIX 
based operating system. UTek's menu- 
based sysadmin interface simplifies the 
most complex system tasks, including net- 
work and system administration. 

Networking is supported by an IEEE 
802.3 Ethernet interface and the stan- 
dard TCP/IP protocol. For file manage- 
ment across the network, the 4320 Series 
uses Sun Microsystems' Network File 
System (NFS)*. 

Color Monitors 

The 4320/4220 Family Workstations and 
Terminals offer a choice of color graphics 
monitors that display 256 colors from a 
palette of more than 16.7 million shades. 
Users can select 16-inch or 19-inch color 
displays, and choose either 1280x1024 
addressability or 1024 x 768 addressabili- 
ty. Anti-reflective coating on the CRT 
screen cuts glare and the 60 Hz, non- 
interlaced operaton virtually eliminates 
flicker. 

Colorful Hardcopy 

A built-in color printer interface supports 
the Tektronix 4693D Color Image Printer 
and Tek's 4692 and 4696 Color Ink-Jet 
Printers. Print spooling allows system use 
while images are being printed. 

* Su n Microsystems ' NFS will be available in 
Spring 1988.

SMALLTALK-80 

• Extensible, Object-Oriented Programming 

• Bit-Mapped Graphics User Interface 

• Designed for Exploratory Programming 

Smalltalk-80 combines an object-oriented 
programming language with the most ad- 
vanced user interface available. Pio- 
neered at Xerox PARC, Smalltalk-80 per- 
mits exploratory programming through 
rapid prototyping and experimentation. 
Smalltalk-80 provides an interactive ap- 
proach to solving complex problems. 

High-Performance Implementation 

Tektronix' implementation of Smalltalk- 
80, combined with the powerful hard- 
ware architecture of the 4300 Series, pro- 
vides graphic response fast enough to 
support screen animation under direct 
control of Smalltalk-80. 



Smalltalk-80 satisfies the needs of ad- 
vanced software developers in the field 
of artificial intelligence and is ideal for AI 
research and development. Smalltalk-80 
can be extended by defining new in- 
stances of an object class (each with its 
own internal state) or by defining an en- 
tirely new object class with a distinct set 
of rules and default behavior. The class 
structure of Smalltalk-80 provides both 
multiple inheritance and hierarchical in- 
heritance mechanisms. Over 200 prede- 
fined classes support the data and con- 
trol abstractions most commonly used in 
AI applications development. 

Original Windowing System 
Bit-mapped graphics and window 
management were originally developed 
for Smalltalk-80. The Smalltalk-80 Model- 
View-Controller window-based manager 
supports the creation of new window- 
based applications. Multiple processes are 
supported with a virtually unlimited 
number of overlapping windows. 

Smalltalk-80 supports primitive graphics 
functions such as scaling, translation, 
rotation, logical combination of pixels, 
and text attribute modification, through 
its integral "Bit Bit" operator. 

Any activity— text editing, file manipula- 
tion, compilation, execution, debugging- 
can be performed, regardless of the cur- 
rent state. The user simply "opens" 
another window and proceeds with the 
new operation. Smalltalk-80 allows im- 
mediate access to any of its subsystems, 
whether user-defined or predefined, for 
inspection or modification. 



TEK Common LISP® 

• A Full Common LISP Implementation 

• Optimized for 4300 Systems 

• Rapid Prototyping of AI Concepts 

• Run Time Compiler for Optimized 
Machine Code 

TEK Common LISP® has been specifically 
optimized and enhanced for the 
Tektronix 4300 Series. It provides AI 
researchers and software developers with 
a personal LISP programming environ- 
ment previously available only on 
dedicated LISP machines. 

Common LISP was conceived by a large 
committee of academicians and AI 
researchers as a language that would in- 
corporate the very best features of other 
LISP dialects. Tek Common LISP is a full 
implementation of this language (as 
specified in "Common LISP, the 
Language" by Guy Steele). It offers a 



much richer set of data types and more 
complex program structures than other 
LISP dialects currently in use. 

A New Standard 

Common LISP is considered by many arti- 
ficial intelligence experts to be a new in- 
dustry standard for AI programming 
environments. This consensus is reflected 
in the general parameters established for 
the language. 

Commonality: Common LISP focuses the 
features of several different implementa- 
tions of LISP into a common dialect. 
Portability: Applications written in 
Common LISP are easily ported to any 
Common LISP implementation. 
Expressiveness: Common LISP is a very 
rich language that employs the most 
valuable constructs from other LISP 
dialects. 

Efficiency: Common LISP has features 
designed to facilitate the production of 
fast, high-quality compiled code. 
Compatibility: Since Common LISP is 
derived from a number of popular 
dialects, code from other LISP dialects 
should readily map into Common LISP. 

Additional Tek Common LISP Features 

Additional features include a powerful 
optimizing compiler with built-in debug- 
ging features; lexically-scoped interpreter 
and compiler; full-featured package 
system for symbol name differentiation; 
rich collection of numerical primitives 
and built-in functions; built-in garbage 
collector and dynamic storage manage- 
ment; complete implementation of arrays, 
vectors, and strings; flexible interactive 
user interface; flexible debugging aids; 
powerful facilities for structures and 
macros; lexical closures; built-in user- 
extensible data-type facility; and built-in 
user-extensible parser and hash-table 
facility. 

The rich set of primitives available in 
Common LISP makes the language an ap- 
propriate candidate for expert systems, 
natural-language interfaces, and all types 
of symbolic programming. Tek Common 
LISP goes beyond the specifications of the 
language to provide on-line documenta- 
tion, a user-definable error handler, 
powerful and robust foreign function in- 
terfaces to C and FORTRAN programs, 
and a built-in Flavors system for object- 
oriented programming.

QUINTUS PROLOG 

• Configured for 4300 Series Systems 

• Non-Procedural Language for Rapid 
Development 

» Modularity for Less Complexity 

QUINTUS PROLOG, as implemented for 
the Tektronix 4300 Workstations, is a 
unique language that allows programmers 
to solve problems by specifying answers 
needed rather than describing a detailed 
solution procedure. Based entirely on 
facts and logical relationships or rules, 
PROLOG is one of the acknowledged lan- 
guages in artificial intelligence. PROLOG 
allows programmers to concentrate on 
the problem/solution without the confu- 
sion of computer-constrained procedures. 

PROLOG operates on the principle of 
"controlled deduction." The programmer 
creates a network of facts and rules that 
describes the known relationships be- 
tween the elements of a problem. Once 
the logical network is defined, PROLOG 
makes logical inferences from the rela- 
tionships when queried by the program- 
mer. These features make PROLOG ideal 
for many AI applications including expert 
systems, natural-language processing, 
data base-query languages, and auto- 
matic programming systems. 
Language and AI Environment for 
Productivity 

QUINTUS PROLOG simplifies complex 
problems and reduces program develop- 
ment time. Program development is in- 
tegrated with an EMACS editor, allowing 
interactive editing and debugging. And 
programs can call other languages to 
create a full AI environment. Predicate 
definitions and programs can be edited, 
loaded, and then tested immediately with 
the PROLOG Interpreter. PROLOG 
modules are developed individually and 
then integrated with other modules into 
an application. Once they are debugged, 
the modules can be compiled to create 
highly efficient executable code. 



Performance for Complex Problems 

The inherent efficiency of QUINTUS PRO- 
LOG is enhanced by the power of the Tek 
4300 Series hardware. With compiled 
QUINTUS PROLOG code more than 70,000 
logical inferences per second are possible 
on the 4300 Series. When combined with 
the 4300 Series, QUINTUS PROLOG is an 
ideal vehicle for both advanced software 
development and end-user AI applications.
